St. Josephs Catholic Church Remodel Marysville, Ca.

This church was built in 1855 and Jackson Construction was hired to do the remodel and bring this back to life. It’s hard to image that from these photo’s the church is 166 years old. What a fun project to be involved in.

It’s looks brand new hard to believe that this was built in 1855. Careful use of natural light and picking a day in the wintertime when there is no fog or weather at dawn, is always a challenge.

This was quite a process to bring this beautiful structure back to life. We shot the old spire being removed and the new spire being installed along with drone footage. The old spire weights 11,500 pounds. The new spire was made out of fiberglass and weights 300 pounds and was fabricated in Texas.

All of the existing stain glass was removed and sent to Iowa. The stain glass was disassembled, labeled, re-leaded, reassembled, welded back together and shipped back to Marysville.

It’s hard to image that this church is 166 years old what a fun project to photograph.
